Windows 7: Burnt out from error error error! Time to go back to Paper.

Hello gregrocker and Anak.
I'm sorry for the late response.
No, it isn't good to try and do this work when I'm tired. The other day I was actually in the process of painting and in between coats of paint drying, I was trying to work on this problem. I have been painting for the past 3 days.
Life gets demanding sometimes and I don't always have the time to sit in front of the computer.

Tonight I just found out I have been logged into the forum on my sister's PC upstairs because I was showing her something a week ago or so, but I wasn't actually logged in on my Netbook downstairs because I haven't had time. So sorry if it looked like I was online and ignoring you. I wasn't.

gregrocker, I did read your tutorials but at the that time I never tried the suggestions because Anak and ICit2lol were in the process of helping me work through steps and giving me suggestions. I am so sorry, I am not that fast.
I thought it would be rude to abandon the people that were helping me and jump over there ... and I was having difficulty absorbing more information. I have read so much 'stuff' about technology in the past month and a 1/2 that my head feels overwhelmed with information.

That being said, I did do this when Anak asked me to: Anak had you mark the Recovery partition Active to see if Recovery would either boot itself at reboot, or if it would now run from F11 or ESC key. It didn't work. I could get to ESC key but still not to F11.

The other day I did watch the HP videos x2 and a month ago I watched that video also.

I went to your trouble shooting tutorial late last night.
Yes, I made an Anti Virus Disc that finally works. I started running Windows Defender at 1:30 A.M. (although the disc has a different time) and threw a towel over the screen and went to bed exhausted. In the morning I looked at it. It didn't find anything.
I am trying step 4 sfc/scannow today and that is where I am at. I didn't do something right it looks like.
I tried rebooting several times and doing it over and running Repair again.
I made the X17-58997.iso Disc also.
Here are the screen shots.
Thank you for your time gregrocker.

I do this for those who are struggling yet trying and eager to learn. You clearly have the ability to do the actual install steps during boot, then the rest is easy for me as well as good practice.

To do this I need you to rescue any files using the Win7 disk to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console. I gave you the ISO download earlier to burn to disk using tool in Step 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Then i will provide links for your network driver to install if necessary to get online and Teamviewe to download to backup. Make a list of the programs you use so I can gathering the installers you don't have. Do you use Office and have its disk and/or key? What word processing do you use?

Think this over as I'd need to do this for you before Tues when I travel for two weeks until I'd have time to do it from my Calif home.
I am lost for words. Thank you so much gregrocker!

Did you see Recovery on the ESC menu?

Looks like you missed a space before the word scannow in the command. It must be typed exactly as printed. SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If it passes the AV scan and SFC then proceed with marking 199mb partition Active to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times from the disk you made. If it fails either scan then run them again and follow the cleanup or further repair procedure in each one's tutorial. Windows Defender Offline

If that fails I would copy out any files you need to rescue to a flash stick or external hard drive: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console, probably under C:Users/Your User name

I just reinstalled an HP 2000 a few weeks ago. If you look on the HP sticker on the PC what is the model extension number, or serial number? We take that number and put it into HP Drivers and Downloads for Printers, Scanners and More | HP Support to find the Network LAN drivers to also download to the backup. You'd want the wireless LAN and Ethernet LAN. I can help you find these if you get the model extension.

In addition put into your backup this download for Free TeamViewer Download for Windows

Hi gregrocker. Actually it looks like I missed 3 spaces throughout the line. It is running right now. How long does it take approx.
It's 2:30 A.M. here. I need to go to bed.
Can I just let it run? Throw a towel over it again. Lol.
I can get the Model no. tomorrow.
In the ESC menu. I would have to recheck.
I remember seeing all the F links. F11 didn't work. F1 etc... did.
I will find some time to work on these things tomorrow gregrocker.
OK. I think it is done. Adding another attachment.

Do you have a function key along the top row to turn off your monitor?

It looks like you have no damaged system files. If the virus scans came up clean then try the bootrec and bootsect commands in Use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues, followed by 3 Startup Repairs with the Active flag on 199mb partition.

When you have any needed files rescued to backup I am ready to help you do the reinstall whenever you want. Download the Network LAN drivers for your exact model to disk, stick or external drive, then Teamviewer. Look over the other preparatory steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to see if there's anything else you want to try to rescue from the install.

Do you use Office and have the disk and Product Key? If not what version of Office or other word processor do you use? What other programs do you rely upon? Do you have their disks and Product Keys? We can help you locate these if not.

Just want to let the two of you know that I'm here, but too many cooks spoil the broth so I'll stand-aside unless specifically asked something.

Greg good catch on those extra spaces, and Elljay, I see Greg has broken his instructions down into paragraphs or steps if you prefer. Take one step at a time.
If you have any questions about anything you don't understand do not hesitate to ask first.

I'm back. Hello there gregrocker, Anak and iCit2lol. Garden and orchard are finally put to bed for winter.
Well, I finally did the Reinstall of Windows 7 last night, on my HP.
Good grief, it wasn't as hard as I was it expecting it to be. Essentially it is just running a Disk and doing updates. I guess I was thinking it was going to be really technical, due to the fact that so many people hire folks to do this for them...including my sister last year.
So here is what happened. I chose partition 2. There was only the option to press NEXT.
I did not delete Recovery and Hp Tools.
Windows installed on C: drive but it did not automatically format the drive. So now I have all the old data which I don't want. (except maybe bookmarks)
The HP Tools look like they disappeared anyways and the F11 key doesn't work.
So, my question is...do I need to do a Re Re-install. Should I do it again?
I don't want to do all the updates if I need to redo it.
My other question is how many times can I use my product key?

Well i guess you missed booting the installer but as long as youre sure you did Custom install to C then It's probably clean enough, once you make sure you have everything needed from C:\ windows.old archive including bookmarks and files. Disk Cleanup can then delete it.

Meanwhile install all Important and Optional Updates with requested restarts until no more are offered when you check for updates.

HP Tools Is hidden folder so the way to test it is boot via ESC to see if Diagnostics will run -which can never hurt and is a step in the tutorial given for HP's. I'd also test to see if Recovery will boot and offers the Minimal choice - which the tutorial says is as good as Clean Reinstall - then Cancel it.

When I get home I'll find your hot key driver if Updates doesn't deliver it. Give Updates a full day to deliver everything then report back what's still missing in Device Manager plus any functions or programs you still need.

Of course if you're following the Reinstall tutorial you know all this. Did you miss booting the disk?

Hi gregrocker. I set the Bios to boot from the CD. It did. I pressed any key.
Is this what you mean by 'booting from the installer'?
Yes, I chose the custom install.
I am following your tutorial.
I've also downloaded all the apps you have suggested.
(They are in waiting.)
OK gregrocker, I will go ahead with all the Updates.
I really appreciate your patience.

Good. At least we know an Upgrade Repair install wasn't done. Do you see windows.old on C? Size?

What bookmarks are you missing? IE favorites will be under C:/windows. old/Users/your Name/Favorites. Click on Organize to Select All and drag the group to your new User Favorites folder.

Printer "out of paper" error
I have an HP Deskjet F4280, and as of yesterday, 7 is saying that the printer is out of paper, when it clearly isn't. The funny thing is, I installed the printer in XP Mode as well, and it prints fine from there. Strange issue. Has anybody ever encountered this?
